PS4 – 20/02/2013?

Cryptic, much?

In a bid to steal a march not only on Microsoft’s next Xbox console, but also the encroaching threats presented by both Valve’s Steambox and whatever the tablet/phablet scene offers up next, once dominant gaming titan Sony is going to announce…something on February 20th in New York.

And if you were of the betting persuasion, it wouldn’t take much to persuade you to drop some currency on the PS4 being announced formally – whether this is confirming specs or just showing the case, who can tell?

It’s all getting a tad bit exciting, games fans – new generation get!

SongPop – or how I forgot to hate Facebook in the name of play.

Fragile sense of identity, meet your nemesis – Facebook game/mobile app/compulsion du jour, SongPop….

Here’s the thing – I don’t see the point in Facebook.  It is, perhaps, an age thing.  I don’t have hordes of friends that I have to keep up with at all hours of the day.  Being constantly appraised of my peers’ doings and disasters is not really of that much consequence to me.  I use young Master Zuckerberg‘s social network to primarily snag the odd MP3 or see a film trailer quickly.

When it comes to social networks, I’m the very definition of a cheap date.

To my point, which does exist – SongPop is a Facebook game.  Or deliciously addictive virtual candy – I can’t quite be sure.

Pick a category, guess five songs quickly, win virtual coins.  Repeat until it calls to, unbidden, like some phantom paramour from gothic fiction, at all hours of the day.

It’s a bit addictive – thank the great Flying Spaghetti Monster that I don’t have a Smartphone capable of running the SongPop app – because that would be a very bad thing indeed.

It’s things like SongPop which make me forget that Facebook is massively wrong and a terrible thing – kudos, humble game developers.
